The House assembled at 10:00 a.m.
Deliberations were opened with prayer by Rev. Charles E. Seastrunk, Jr., as follows:
Our thought for today is from Psalm 33:22: "Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you."
Let us pray. Almighty God, make us enthusiastic to do the work required of us and to do it with joy. Instill in us the desire, the will, and the strength to accomplish those things which contribute to the welfare of others. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all those who aid each of us in our daily work. Protect our defenders of freedom, at home and abroad, as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen.
